My New Outside Blog: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLOTTA FLORES

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLOTTA FLORES

about3

Today is Carlotta’s birthday. How nice, you say. What’s so special about Carlotta?

Well, how about I tell you. Carlotta Flores is head chef/owner of Tucson’s very own El Charro restaurant. And that’s saying something. Mexican restaurants are ubiquitous to Tucson. They are everywhere.

And yet there is only one original El Charro!

Established in 1922, El Charro Café of Tucson, Arizona is The Nation's Oldest Mexican Restaurant in continuous operation by the same family. Featuring traditional Northern Mexico-Sonoran style and innovative Tucson-style Mexican Food, El Charro Café is truly as Gourmet Magazine wrote: "A Taste Explosion".

With a large array of award winning hand-crafted recipes based on Sonoran and Local ingredients, El Charro Café is a passage to Tucson's Culinary History that has been won the dining icon acclaim from all over the world. People come from all corners of the globe to experience El Charro Café.

Holy crap, this food is GREAT! I should know.

The Legendary Tia Monica Flin, is well-known as “The Inventor of The Chimichanga.” While frying her now famous El Charro ground beef tacos, she accidentally dropped a burro into the frying pan and when the oil splashed up she was about to lash out a common Spanish cuss word starting with “Ch” but because she was amongst her young nieces and nephews, changed it to “Chimichanga”, the equivalent of “thingamajig.” Thankfully for all of us, Monica was a controlled and creative cuss.

For the complete story of El Charro, just click this link. You can thank me later…

Too bad you folks aren't in Tucson. I have sought out good Mexican food all over the country, and Carlotta and El Charro are simply the greatest.
